Better sourcing software for higher education procurement

Your campus depends on timely, transparent sourcing decisions to power research and teaching activities. Bonfire helps procurement teams deliver, through an easy-to-use cloud-based sourcing and contract management platform. Spend less time administering the process, and more time working with stakeholders to drive high-value decisions for your school.

Key benefits

Save time and reduce risk

Managing sourcing decisions through emails, meetings, and spreadsheets is not only time-consuming — it also carries a high risk of error. With your entire sourcing workflow centralized on Bonfire, you can run projects in half the time and manage all information in one place, for informed decisions.

Reach more vendors

Bonfire’s transparent, intuitive platform allows you to reach a wider pool of vendors, manage vendor communication, and receive submissions online. The average vendor submission takes only 8 minutes, so your vendors can focus on developing competitive responses without the hassle of printing and shipping.

Involve stakeholders seamlessly

Bonfire makes it easy for evaluators across campus to securely access, compare, and score responses at their convenience. With real-time visibility into scores and progress, you can cut down on meetings, keep timelines on track, and facilitate informed decisions.

Air-tight audit trails

No matter your unique requirements, Bonfire helps you enforce compliance through customizable built-in controls. Clear visibility and complete decision reports mean you never lose sleep over an audit or vendor debrief again.
